Transportation Contributions have been established by the Reach High Scholars Program to encourage visits to highly resourced colleges within 450 miles of their homes.
The Contributions are for parents, faculty members or friends who drive to any of those colleges with at least two RHSP members, one of whom is not related to the driver, for purposes of an organized tour of the campus and an admissions office presentation. The reimbursements will be at a rate of $0.30 per mile. The Contribution amounts for each of the schools are set out below.
Visits to schools that are more than 200 miles from home will be reimbursed only if the number of students on the trip times the number of schools visited equals at least eight (i.e. four students must visit at least two schools; three students must visit at least three). Not all colleges visited on such a trip need to be more than 200 miles from home.
In many instances it will be possible to combine two schools in a day, which is encouraged. Contributions in such cases will be based on the actual mileage (calculated by Google Maps).
To be reimbursed for a college visit, drivers must submit to Sarah Nelson (email@example.com), Program Director of RHSP, fully completed, a Liability Release for College Visits for each passenger and a Use of Vehicles in Activities of Reach High Scholars Program for the vehicle, in each case satisfactory in form and substance to the Treasurer.
Payments will be made by check upon receipt of an email to Sarah Nelson, listing the date of the trip; school(s) visited; proof from each school that a campus tour and presentation were attended; name and address of the driver and names of RHS students on the trip.
